and russia, it would only change if hamas met the long-standing conditions, which are recognizing israel and agreeing to end violence and accepting all the previously arranged agreements between the israelis and the palestinians. so if hamas were to accept those conditions, yes, i think the u.s. would go forth and end that boycott of hamas. it doesn't look like hamas is ready to accept those conditions, at least not yet. let's see what happens. it doesn't look like they're ready to do that any time soon. as a result, the u.s. will boycott hamas and won't have any direct talks with hamas and will still regard it as a state department listed terrorist organization. >> wolf blitzer reporting live from beer sheva, israel, this morning. >>> a man attacked a security guard at the u.s. embassy in tel aviv. the attacker was wielding an ax, but he also had a knife. the man now under arrest. >>> president obama getting updates on the middle east aboard air force one, in the air, on his way back home, wrapping up his tour of asia hours ago with stops in thailand, myanmar and cambodia, where he atte
